After this morning’s visit with my endocrinologist, we have decided to suspend my use of the t:slim insulin pump.

I’ve had a good run and a bad run with it, and it seems that maybe this pump is just not for me. I’ve had a lot of issues lately, some that were happening with the old pump that we thought were fixed by the replacement, and some new ones. As of the 7th of this month, I had started on MDI for a couple of days and then a couple of days later, I went back to my Medtronic pump, both with better results than the t:slim. I don’t want to say that the t:slim is a bad pump, because it apparently works great for some. But for me, it doesn’t and it’s just not a good fit right now. I hope that they are able to improve upon their design within the next couple of years, and maybe I’ll go back to it.

As of now, I’m following his orders and staying on the Medtronic Revel. Thank you to all who have followed me over the past couple of months. It’s been a joy to blog about my t:slim adventure for you.
